Rourke Bails On ‘The Expendables 2′
Some would say Mickey Rourke was on a hot streak after roles in The Wrestler, Iron Man 2 and The Expendables. Unfortunately, The Informers, Killshot, 13 and the unbelievably bad Passion Play make you wonder if more bad choices lie ahead . . . like this one – Rourke has decided not to reprise his role as Tool in The Expendables 2. Instead, Rourke has chosen to join Martin McDonagh (In Bruges) for Seven Psychopaths. He will star along side Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell and Christopher Walken. Seven Psychopaths, recently focuses on Marty, a struggling screenwriter (Farrell) who gets caught up in his friends’ (Rockwell and Walken) dog-napping scheme. When they steal the Shih Tzu of a psychotic gangster (Rourke), Marty finds more action and drama than he bargained for and attempts to stay alive long enough to jot it all down. For Rourke’s sake, I hope this and the upcoming Immortals keep the streak going . . .
